Total Time:  30 minutes
Prep Time:  10 minutes
Cook Time:  20 minutes
Serving Size:  2-3


1/2 lb. Pappardelle’s Ragin' Cajun Linguine
4 tablespoons butter, divided
1/4 cup zucchini, diced
1/4 cup red bell pepper, diced
2 tablespoons dry white wine
1 cup heavy cream
1/3 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese
1 tablespoon grated Romano cheese, plus additional for garnish
1/2 lb. shrimp, cleaned & deveined
3 tablespoons Frank’s Red Hot Buffalo Wing Sauce
Pinch of parsley, for garnish


  1. Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salted water, stirring occasionally, until al dente, about 8-10 minutes. When pasta is done, follow Step 4.
  2. Meanwhile, add 3 tbsp. butter to a sauté pan. Sauté zucchini and peppers until they begin to soften but are still firm, about 3-4 mins. Add wine, heavy cream, Gorgonzola, and Romano. Reduce mixture by 1/3.
  3. While the veggie-cheese sauce mixture is cooking, in a separate pan, sauté shrimp in 1 tbsp. butter and wing sauce until pink and opaque, about 1-2 minutes per side.
  4. When pasta is done, drain and add to veggie-cheese sauce mixture, tossing to coat. Reduce to desired consistency. Plate pasta mixture and top with buffalo shrimp. Garnish with extra wing sauce (if desired), Romano and parsley. Enjoy!
